Overtime Exemption Audit

The objective of Overtime Exemption Audit is to assess risk levels of work activities in an organization which are required to be carried out overtime beyond 12 hours a day.

No. of man days is very subjective and for some small SMEs, we will complete audit in 0.5 day also. This audit is applicable to those organizations who are applying for Overtime Exemption.

The audit will be conducted by MOM Approved Risk Consultant (ARC) employed by MOM Approved Risk Consultant Company. The audit covers document review, site inspection on verifying implementation of risk control measures and interview of key personnel.

The ARC will check to ensure that risk assessment has taken into consideration:

  • ico The length of extended working hours and
  • ico The types of work and workload of employees and include, where applicable, adjusted exposure limits to chemical/noise and assessment of heat stress and manual material lifting. The risk level takes into account all implemented risk control measures.Upon going through risk register, ARC will endorse risk register provided he is satisfied and confirmed that all work activities carried out overtime involve “Low Risk” and none of activities listed under Annex A of Overtime Exemption Application Form are carried out overtime.
